Please I just wanna know.
This issue has been bugging me for some time now.
If there are any medical students here, please your opinion is highly needed.

I've been hearing that medicine is very tough and all that, but being an average student, can I still scale through?
Will it be as easy as it is with top students?
Don't get me wrong, I didn't choose medicine because I wanted to. It's been my dream right from JSS2..
But being at home for 2 years, due to delay in getting admitted, without going to school, little or less study has really depleted what I had back then in secondary school.
I just need advice.
Please there should be no insults.

Thanks.

same thing happening to me those comment in the first page has really encouraged me do you stay in lag

are you saying universities in the north are substandard?
I am saying that there are lesser competition in the north than in the south.

Castigation is part of life though..

I won't blame the ones trying to discourage me or otherwise.
If I study medicine or not, it doesn't affect your lives.

Action speaks louder than words..
Don't be surprised if I eventually get admitted with my 216.. I'll still come here to broadcast the Good news..

Y'all better have a nice day.
hmmm

To start with, I'm a final year medical student.

Yes, an average student can scale through medical school. The only part that is difficult for average students is getting admitted for medicine. That's usually a survival of the fittest thing.

But does that mean only extraordinarily brilliant students get admitted to medicine in our country? No. Here in my school, many average or even academically poor students are admitted into medicine based on connections (supplementary list).

And you know what? Most of these average students scale through med school without any problems. Or with few issues, such as resits.

So far an average student is not lazy and can plan his/her time well, he/she will be fine. Even the so called very brilliant students do fail exams due to laziness and carelessness.

Of course...just be ready to sit down and read, source for materials, make good use of your time and don't neglect God. You'll make it through.

What makes you think you are an average person?
You need to break from that mediocre thought pattern. How many head does people who study medicine has?, you need to find your rhythm and discover yourself. I tell you, you've got the prerequisite and everything it takes to excel in that field. If you can you settle it in your mind you will be surprised the strides you'll make... I pray you catch this understanding. There is more to this...

FIRSTLY, I can't comprehend your grammar.
I have been trying to, honestly
No punctuations, no syntax, past against present tenses....present against past
Are you sure you are a Medical Doctor...??

Secondly: Anyone who avoids Long discussions and Topics can't study Human medicine and Surgery, because it's VOLUMINOUS.
U have study groups that last for hours, some even days with minimal breaks and call offs
A certified one for that matter,
A recognised member of the Nigerian Medical and Dental council, if you are really interested in knowing more about my profile including my registration number with my folio number in the council, I can easily relay the info to you.
One other thing is that as a doctor, i was found to be worthy both in character and in learning so for your earlier comments, I will just overlook them because really you don't know me likewise.

My DEAR you can.
MEDICINE is not meant for the brilliant alone, rather for the HARDWORKING types.
When I was set to embark on my trip through the Medical College to study HUMAN MEDICINE/SURGERY, the first gift my dad offered me was a CHAIR.
A very nice and suitable one for that matter.
He said to me " this CHAIR will remind you that you are meant to sit down and study for a longer time than others"
As a scholar, i was an AVERAGE STUDENT, although I have been a smart and hardworking man.
I surrounded myself with intelligent chaps as well.
That became a morale booster.
Always surround yourself with MEDICAL STUDENTS that will want to graduate as soon as possible.
They always know how to source for MATERIALS.
Join CHRISTIAN GATHERINGS, for they know how to hoard materials from UNBELIEVERS.
Finally, Choose your ROOMMATES yourself.
Make sure 85 percent of them are studying Human Medicine and Surgery.
If you can do all these, that means I will attend your Graduation Party.
At graduation, I will also encourage you to enrol for the United States Licensing Medical Examination.
Could you believe that Some SENIOR PREFECTS as it where those days, were withdrawn from my medical college....??
They relied on past glories.
However, if you find my SUGGESTION too long, then know u can't study medicine because it's VOLUMINOUS.
i doff cap


Permit me to modify your post a little bit and post it on the first page of the Ui 2018/2019 Aspirants thread.

That's a flawed opinion.
See the thousands that apply to ABU, UNIjos, udusok, unimaid etc..

The northerners need doctors too

As a medical student, I will only advise an avg student to study medicine if he wants to spend major chunk of his life reading and scouting for past questions. To maintain his 50s in exam, he will have zero social life if he doesn't want to resit or repeat. If the top notch guys resit and sometimes repeat.
